Marianne Verstappen-Theeven's Profile
Dear Tommy's Sister visitor!
At a five minutes’ walk from my home in the Dutch city of Tilburg the countryside begins. There are fields, pools and woodland. I often run there to empty my head. Back home however my head is full of ideas for new designs for my cushions or other textile pieces.
I grew up in the countryside and have always been collecting everything I could find outside: seeds and seed boxes, stones and pebbles, flowers, leafs, little branches, (snails’) shells etc. There is so much beauty in these small treasures of nature.
Other little treasures of beauty are children’s drawings.
Since I discovered the sewing machine (before that I did a lot of knitting, embroidering and hand sewing) I convert my inspiration into textile pieces for the home. I like to make things with practical use. Beautiful things with a soul make you happy when using them…
